During Grüninger's time as Senior Research Scientist in the Enterprise Integration
he was the project leader for the design and implementation of the
ontologies for the Toronto Virtual Enterprise (TOVE) project.
An Ontology for Quality Management
An Organisation Ontology for Enterprise Modelling
Ontologies and Enterprise Modelling
Logic of enterprise modelling
The TOVE ontologies formed a library of ontologies axiomatized in
first-order logic with the concepts required to represent and
reason about enterprise models.
An enterprise model is a computational representation of the structure,
activities, information, resources, people, behaviours, goals, and
constraints of an enterprise. The role of an enterprise model is to
achieve model-driven enterprise design, analysis, and operation.
The TOVE Ontologies were applied in several multinational companies,
including IBM Ontologies to support process integration in enterprise engineering
, BHP Steel (Australia), and Toyo Engineering (Japan).
